Thankfully, Jordan got the medical attention he needed in time. But, as it turns out, that was only round one of his penis' losing bout against redback spiders.
On Tuesday - five months following the bite - it happened all over again in another Porta Potti.
"I was sitting on the toilet doing my business and just felt the sting that I felt the first time," Jordan told the BBC this week. "I was like 'I can't believe it's happened again.' I looked down and I've seen a few little legs come from around the rim."
By now an expert on what to do when a spider bites his penis, Jordan knew to get to the hospital, where he was treated with antivenom and released shortly thereafter. The experiences, Jordan says, have made him wary of using the facilities at work the next time nature calls, telling BBC:
"I think I'll be holding on for dear life to be honest."
